THE WESTIN RESORT COSTA NAVARINO


Costa Navarino, Messinia Greece

westin-resort_news

Drago manufactures doors, boiserie, windows and bronze fixtures for the Westin Resort Costa Navarino, Greece.

Made for Kinoussis group

Located in the south-western part of the Peloponnese, directly on the golden beach near the characteristic village of Pylos, the Westin Resort Costa Navarino is a five star structure with 445 rooms and suites as well as restaurants, a conference centre, a golf club and a spa. The intervention aimed at creating a resort that took on the architectural forms of the traditional rural constructions of Messinia, arranging them according to a concept of discreet luxury and creating perfect harmony with the surrounding environment.

Management of this important order, made up of various types of products and made to drawings, has involved Drago in working alongside the company: from the preliminary project engineering phases, to the assembly phase, up to the final testing.

The design and production of doors and windows required special attention in order to obtain large sized opening systems, capable of guaranteeing the required performance. In the main entrance area, the reception and the conference rooms, the doors and windows were made of heat-cut bronze window profiles. Technologically functional, the doors, windows and shutters were upgraded with panels taken from profiles, again in bronze, flat and plaited and finely shaped. The inside doors and the hallway wood panelling were made with a modern solution in line with finishing in essence of durmast, iroko and walnut, characterised by a marked horizontal veining. The doors belong partially to the Minimal Drago line collection, in part produced to the exclusive design of the designer (in conformity with standard EI30, EI 60 and sound absorbent), who designed to order many other carpentry works, for example the large sliding doors for which special technical solutions were studied.

XENIA – WALLS FOR INTERIOR IN WOOD AND GLASS

Xenia is Drago’s new proposal for interior divisions. In glass and wood, it is ideal for offices, restaurants, wellbeing centres, shops and homes; this means that dividers and walls can be made to measure, with great freedom of composition, wherever there is the need for elegance, modernity and transparency. Clean lines and basic shapes characterise the system, which combines the sensation of natu- ralness expressed by the solid wood profiles. The essences and open pore finishes available vary: from the warm tones of cognac tinted durmast to the minimalist natural durmast, from the fascinating veining of Canaletto walnut to the severe colour of wenge tinted durmast.

BERSÒ – SYSTEM FOR OPEN SPACES

The warmth of wood, the severity of geometrics, the essentialness of steel joints: Bersò takes shape from these ingredients, a modular system for creating elegant pergolas and complex architectures. The accessory elements, such as wooden plank floor, the vertical grilles and the curtains, complete the whole and can be freely composed to create whatever atmosphere is desired.The essences, chosen from among the most suitable ones to be used for exteriors, can be painted or varnished in various colours, depending on requirements. The metal joints and the feet of the structure are made from stainless steel plates, their shapes dry and angular, in contrast with the softness of wood: a characteristic combination that makes this new Drago product unique.

ASTERAS RESORT *****


Athens, Greece

asteras-resort

A demanding and challenging project: only two months for planning, realizing and delivering it; large high-performance double-glazed lifting sliding windows; external sliding sunbreakers made of solid oak fitted with a finishing band; internal pelmets to complete the mechanized curtain system.

Very high quality finishings were demanded: all in nature oak with all the technical features necessary to tackle a salty climate, with a high exposure to the sunlight and critical thermic conditions.

The Drago team has worked side by side with planners and customers, inspired by its will to innovate and create design concepts, finding in the end a feasible, original and enticing technical solution.
